Need anymore proof?  I CAN’T BELIEVE that in 2008, these types of discussions are allowed to be aired on a nationally “respected” news program.  On the flip side, I bet there are a ton of white supremacists who endorse McCain to the fullest extent…Do you think he backs their views Fox?

Fox news continues to spread fear among its viewers to keep them boxed-up in a conservative world.  If the public is scared of a black leader, they will vote McCain and Fox will have its way.  Obama doesn’t agree with Ludacris, and anyone with half a brain cell should understand this.  Fox news is scared of change and will do whatever they can to make sure this country is lead by a white man.  It’s NOT about race, it’s about CHANGE. 

I am completely offended by this blatant ignorance and hope Obama will be able to look past this and prevail come November…Fox News, you are a disgrace to national media.



I came across this Brenton Wood LP about a month ago, and haven’t been able to get this track out of my head since…That undeniably funky keyboard solo at the 1:22 mark is ridiculous too.  What’s even more ridiculous is the way that Dilla chopped and looped it into the Donuts bonus track “Signs.” 

Bottom line, Brenton Wood is the definition of Street-Soul and deserves all the props thrown his way.. 

Is It Funky Enough?

July 29, 2008

Every now-and-then I get a healthy slap in the face from some funky soul music…The most recent instance is no exception.  While in my zone at the record store last weekend, a certain 7″ was brought to my attention.  This was “Misdameanor” by The Sylvers (performed by Foster Sylver), which I had yet to experience.  

However, the second the needle hit the groove, it all came full-circle…

I can’t believe the production line-up…Am I sleeping on this guy?

Who Killed It?

July 25, 2008

Straigh Outta Brockton…

So I was doing some thinking about the current state of music, and how the situation we’re in seems to be a direct response to the digital age. If you want to pinpoint the moment the music went downhill, start back around 1998 when Napster first hit the web. Songs became easily accessible, and even more notably FREE. Thus, began the age of the free downloads.

Crazy Like a Foxxx

July 25, 2008

This Tuesday (7/29), Fat Beats will be releasing the classic Crazy Like a Foxxx on 2xCD.  Back in 1994, this demo was released on limited cassette, and is finally getting the proper treatment it deserves.  The first disc is the original version of the album, while the second is the fully DITC-produced version (Showbiz, Diamond D, etc.)…Also, look for guest appearances from such rap legends as the late 2Pac, Chuck D, and Kool G Rap.

Track list below…

Blood Missiles

July 23, 2008


Raekwon: “Blood Missiles”

Some more heat off OB4CL2, which is apparently scheduled for a January 2009 release date…And I believe it this time!

Del: “If You Must”

July 23, 2008

I thought it would only be fair to take Bass Radio back to the West Coast this week, for some of that Deltron Bay Area funk.  And what’s funkier than stank breath?  Here, Del explains proper hygiene to all you smelly hip-hop heads across the globe.

Got to get some gum, got to get him some…

According to HipHopDX, Nas is already looking towards his next project(s). Ideally, he wants to do two separate collaborations. One DJ Premier full-length, and one Dr. Dre full-length…And not only that, but he wants them to drop on the same date.

WHOA. Now that’s some wishful thinking…My first response is “yeah right,” but I’ve been proven wrong before. But knowing how long Dr. Dre takes to make a project (*cough*Detox*cough*), don’t hold your breath for a Nas & Dre album anytime soon.
